Cat R1700 Underground Loader to Boost Productivity at Dargues

Improved productivity has been a key driver in the PYBAR decision to introduce the Cat® R1700 underground loader to its operations at Dargues Gold Mine in late 2019 / early 2020. Performance trials at the Vivien Gold Mine last year, measuring the R1700 against the R1700G highlighted positive productivity trends.

Improving LV safety

Reduced visibility of LVs in the underground environment is a significant safety risk – even when fitted with mandatory flashing beacons. To address this issue, we undertook an initiative to improve LV safety by fitting all LVs across our sites with whip aerials. To date, the results have been notable.
